Interesting only as to get a feel for the history of the philosophy of science. Bacon's enumeration of experiments is hilarious in light of today's knowledge and he himself failed one of the most important tests of his experimental enthusiasm in his contempt for William Harvey and other men of science, including many in Bacon's past, such as Galen.
